The actual number of COVID-19 infections is likely to be significantly higher than the figures recorded by health officials across the globe, according to a new German study. Christian Bommer and Sebastian Vollmer from Germany’s Göttingen University in central Germany studied data from a study that was recently published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases monthly journal, DW reported.

The researchers analyzed the novel coronavirus mortality estimates and the period from the contraction of infection until death to evaluate the standard of the official case records. The researchers’ data revealed that nations have only found on average around 6% of all coronavirus infections. They said that the actual complete figure of people infected by COVID-19 may have already risen to tens of millions of people globally.
